Step inside a fascinating world of Jews who relate to their Jewishness through the vehicle of punk. Why did punk—a subculture and music style characterized by a rejection of established norms—appeal to Jews? How did Jews who were genuinely struggling with their Jewish identity find ways to express it through punk rock? Michael Croland will give a multimedia presentation based on his book, Oy Oy Oy Gevalt! Jews and Punk. Na Nach Oi! (featuring Yishai Romanoff of Moshiach Oi!) will perform acoustic renditions of Jewish punk songs. Click here for more information.
